Party on, weekend! These two days off in London are going to be huge, so brace yourselves for all the fun and frolics. Starting with the huge glitzy and dragtastic Sink the Pink Street Party. They’ll be showering Finsbury Park with plenty of dancing, disco and glitter in this day-to-night street shindig. Not your bag? Why not opt for a different kind of street party and celebrate Regent’s Street 200th birthday this Sunday. Bring the family along to see free recipe demos, upcycling workshops and live music. Your weekend in London, sorted.

See Dale Chihuly’s (the man behind the giant chandelier in the V&A’s entrance hall) stunning glass sculptures sparkle as they’re lit-up after dark at these special Kew Garden lates. Besides pretty lights, there’ll be live musicians, food and drinks from the brand new Pavilion Cafe.

Summer Streets on Regent Street

The usually heaving Regent street will become traffic-free zone this Sunday to celebrate its 200th birthday. There will be free recipe demos to tackle food waste and upcycling workshops where you can learn how to tart up your old garms. Neat!

Restaurants, British

Restaurant of the Week: Casa Fofò

icon-location-pin Hackney

A tasting menu for £39? Yes, please. This neighbourhood restaurant from an ex-Pidgin chef whips out dishes that are surprisingly, relentlessly ambitious and bloody delicious. Think black garlic in a dessert – and calf’s brain that’s a bit like a tater tot.

Film, Comedy

Film of the Week: Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino’s riotous alt-history of ’60s Hollywood. Go for a glorious love letter to the movies where Brad and Leo shoot the breeze. It’s a heady, engrossing, kaleidoscopic, spectacularly detailed nostalgic splatter collage of a film.

Show of the Week: ‘Evita’

icon-location-pin Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park

This is ‘Evita’ 2.0 – a swaggering reboot of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic. It’s Jamie Lloyd doing what Jamie Lloyd does best: taking something a bit lumpy and trad and thwacking it into a fun shape.

Bar of the Week: Roof Garden St Pancras

icon-location-pin St Pancras

A rooftop bar beneath the iconic towers of the Renaissance Hotel. Discover gin-tinged peace in the middle of King’s Cross and tuck into doughy pizzas from the outdoor woodfire oven.
